"R.E.M. Survivor 2008" lightning strikes

I recently drove past Jones Beach and was reminded of my last adventure there this past summer. This day was one of the most romantic dates of my life and very close to life changing later. Here's a kick off of how the night began...

Pensyl and I had just sat down and caught one of Modest Mouse' songs and moments later found ourselves SATURATED by rain, drops so heavy our umbrella began to cave in on us. Lighting hit the venue and its sound was so INTENSE. Dan said he felt like lightening grazed his head. The band suddenly stopped playing but the drummer kept rockin' it out! It was definitely a moment. This was the announcement they made after the fact. They later confirmed lightening had struck the venue.
